Sound Test: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia- An Empty Tome/Main Theme



Music is relative. It effects us in such a personal way that we can't possibly hope to describe the extent of that effect to anyone. It's why we are so protective (and sometimes even snobby) about it. Your personal taste in music will always be better to you than anyone else. So it's best to probably just accept that.

Here I will weekly (heh...) choose a piece of game music that I love and share it! Then talk about it. Not too complex, but I hope it's something you'll enjoy!

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia- An Empty Tome/Main Theme



Dracula's Castle Arranged Version



Ok ok! I know! I just posted one of these last night, but it seems that as soon as I write one, I want to write another! So, I'll use the excuse that I got a full night's rest in between.

Anyway, I explained a bit about Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and my experiences with the Castlevania series in my last Sound Test entry. Still, I couldn't ignore this gem of a song. Rarely these days does a game's theme stir immediate excitement in me. Sure, after hours of turning the game on to play it, a song can become memorable, but it takes something more to have a song effect you the first time you hear it. I can think of two recent songs in particular that have managed to do this for me, the first stage theme in Super Mario Galaxy and the main theme of Castlevania: OoE.

The first time I heard this song was during one of the earlier trailers for the game. It quickly got me much more excited than I had been for previous entries in the series and moved my interest level for the game from "Looks cool." to "NEED NOW.". I'm not sure why or how, I just knew that this song would go on to define this game. So, I wasn't very surprised when I found that it was the theme of the Opening cinematic.

A great song to usher in the start of a great game. Please enjoy!
